Nugent Exercises His First Amendment Right… Army Soldiers Get Punished

By: Andrea Ryan

So much for Freedom of Speech.

Ted Nugent has been removed from his scheduled concert performance to entertain our Army soldiers in Fort Knox.  Even though the Secret Service determined that recent remarks the musician made regarding the president did not violate any laws, our Obama-led government still decided to mete out its own Obama-style punishment.  Never mind the ones being punished are our soldiers.

According to CNN,

It’s lights out on Ted Nugent’s scheduled performance at an Army base in Kentucky.

Commanders at Fort Knox have decided against allowing the “Motor City Madman” to take the stage at the base in June, the latest fallout over Nugent’s comments that he would be “dead or in jail” if President Barack Obama were re-elected.

“After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation,” according to an announcement posted Saturday on the base’s Facebook page.

The concert at the base is part of the “Midwest Rock n’ Roll Express” tour featuring co-headliners Nugent, REO Speedwagon and Styx.

Better to punish the soldiers than have Obama’s ego bruised.  It’s an Obama world.

  • Of course if he had posted a bounty on Obama or incited others to burn down his house….oh, yeah, I forgot, only anarchists and Socialists can do that without any consequences.

  • Callipygian1

    If I know Nugent, he will sponsor another concert, free to any serviceman… write a song Ted!

  • RS

    Fort Knox is now the Army’s “personnel” command.

    That’s as politically correct as it gets. These are future HR clerks.

    Are these code words. Who writes this stuff. Okay, Okay, Andrea Ryan of CNN

    How confusing. CNN has decided that saying the word “n**ger” on national television is now acceptable. However, ABC still finds it offensive.


  • Patty

    Republican VP candidate in 08 received death threats.

    The release of 24,000 pages of Sarah Palin’s emails shows that she received a barrage of abusive emails including death threats in the run up to the 2008 presidential race.

    Sarah Palin emails: Enemies sent a series of death threats

    Obama had her emails taken and government read every word.

    Yes, it is an Obama world. I don’t believe we will see Nugent in jail or dead.

    OBAMA IS A LOSER, COME NOVEMBER WE WILL ALL BE BACK ON TRACK ONCE AGAIN. I can guarantee we won’t see another radical like him in the White House because the voters will speak. That is our best revenge.

    Trayvon Martin shooting was not an act of racism, but a community trying to defend itself

    The sensationalism by the media against George Zimmerman for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, clouds the real reason a shooting occurred in the first place.

    The pundits, the community organizers, the pot stirrers, are all trying to find a scapegoat and the convenient one to blame is George Zimmerman. But Zimmerman is but the symptom of a government failing in its prime function: To provide protection and security for its citizens. If government does not provide protection for its citizens, then the citizens will provide it for themselves…and what the citizens provide will not be as professional and polished as a trained police force.

    The gated community that George Zimmerman is a resident, has been the repeated target of crime. Zimmerman himself had made repeated phone calls to the local police to report suspicious behavior/crime as had been requested by that department. Other members of the community had made calls as well. As far as the cops were concerned, that wasn’t excessive in a neighborhood fighting petty crime. {…}

    Some communities are getting rid of their local departments of police and fire altogether, finding them too expensive to maintain, they are sub contracting with regional sheriff and fire departments to serve their needs. Many communities are now using private fire fighting services and considering using private security companies to proivide basic protections.

    All of this doesn’t bode well to the citizen that think instant help will be there with a 911 call. In many cases when danger is seconds away, the police are just minutes away and the difference between you living to be able to defend yourself in court, or dying and being carried away in a casket….is your right to bear fire arms.

    There will be calls for tighter gun controls because of the Trayvon Martin shooting, but

    more restrictions only give the criminals a bigger advantage. Look at the cities with the tightest gun controls, it doesn’t put a dent in the criminals owning guns. As a result citizens feel the need to enhance their security with more neighborhood watches and by purchasing fire arms for their personal protection.

    This whole dog and pony show is to appease the racist like Panthers, Sharpton and Jackson. The Nugent thing is too. Cory is trying to give the town time to settle down. Thank God Zimmerman is released because there is no evidence against him.

    The guilt lies with the person in the Police Department who let something out to the public that this was a case of Manslaughter now that detective says there is no evidence of this.

    I do believe this is a wrongful arrest. Time will tell.

    Taqiy. I should add, this was my senior year in high school. Our teacher did not use the text book assigned to our class, but chose, instead, to do a series of lectures. He was one of the best teachers I was privileged to have. As a matter of fact, I cannot recall one teacher I had throughout my primary and secondary education who wasn’t.

  • Joanne

    I don’t imagine Ted Nugent will be too happy about this either.

    “With the help of Representatives like Barbara Boxer of California, a bill rapidly working through Capitol Hill (passed through the Senate and is currently up for review in the House) will give the IRS power to:
    Accuse Americans of delinquency of tax payment without due process
    Revoke their passports and travel rights
    Place the accused in a centralize database
    Authorize the removal of their right to own a firearm

    No formal charges are required. Simply the accusation from the IRS is sufficed to strip American citizens of their Constitutional rights.

    “There is no requirement that the tax payer be guilty of or even charged with tax evasion, fraud, or any criminal offense — only that the citizen is alleged to owe the IRS back taxes of $50,000 or more,” reports the Daily Economist.”

    “A frightening pattern is forming and America is waking up”

    You people are out of your minds. Do you seriously think a person who called the Commander in Chief “vile” and “evil” should be performing at a military function? I think it’s you who needs to wake up – to the real world.

    Quisling Military Commanders, following an African impostor CIC.

  • #22 do you think a person who called the CiC vile, evil, stupid, etc should be the NEXT CiC ?

  • aprilnovember811

    He’s not CIC. He’s a fraud. He is African born, and the fact that the lie keeps being repeated doesn’t make it come true. It only makes more people liars and Quislings. You can think he’s CIC, if it makes you feel good, but he’s nothing but a former drug user? He’s nothing but a bum. Everyone’s pretending because they’re afraid to say the truth because it will hurt the black race. They think they’ve elected the “First African American President.” They’ve elected the first African Despotic usurper. He’s a lying sociopath. The guy deserves as much respect as Adolf Hitler.

    “A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”~Lenin

    A lie has has to be be repeated so often that virtually no one bothers to challenge it: Adolf Hitler created and used the “Big Lie,” one of his many evil techniques. As holds true for so many things we are told, this belief, too, must be examined to see the underlying truth.

    In Mein Kampf, Hitler wrote:
    All this was inspired by the principle – which is quite true in itself – that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.
    Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes. ” ~Adolf Hitler

    I spit on our Military hierarchy. They’re TRAITORS! I spit on them!

    Fort Knox.. Keeper of the private foreign owned Federal Reserve gold vault (really filled with lead bars).. The whole thing is a joke..
    P.S. as per the official US national dept clock, your share, and every other man, woman, and childs share of the unfunded liabilities “debt” is over 1,000,000.. Check it out on the bottom right corner of the .gov page..
    These global bankers will put you and your children in slavery as was warned by Thomas Jefferson..

    I’m going to see him w/Styx & REO when they roll into Chicago in June. I can’t wait, now more than ever, to see a real American patriot,who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is and speak his mind. Though we have wondered if the Rahmfather and Obdumbo will try and pull something to get him nixed from the lineup. It’s the only time I’ll go into the cesspool city after leaving it 22 years ago. Only reason I have to cross the city limits and go back in…the Nuge! The troops should demand he be put back in the lineup!

  • John H Dorge

    Regardless of political leanings, NOT having to see The Nuge perform is the opposite of punishment. Unless you’re defining “punishment” as “still having to see Styx and REO Speedwagon.”

  • 3Up 4Down

    These functions are not about the CiC but about troops and the moral they carry into the field.
    These are down time and many CO’s have referred to them as R & R over the years.
    If LBJ or Richard Nixon had been so concerned about their image with the troops or America, I suppose Bob Hope would have stayed home instead of spending Christmas with the troops.

    Incidentally an excellent video on the CiC and troops moral and reaction

  • Candy

    But a muslim psychiatrist attempting to convert our PTSD soldiers returning home; showing a Power Point presentation on how America deserved it and gunning down soldiers on a post is fine.

    If you don’t know who lied his way into the WH by now, you’ll never know.

    Ted, have a concert off-post and base outside every facility you can.

    (When Rush hears about this, he’ll throw in jake for the venues and raise money for it)

  • wallim mchaulich

    As a 20-year vet and patriot my opinion is this: Most high ranking officers are totally spineless yes-men. That’s how they got promoted: by never upsetting the apple cart. They’d just as soon join a tutu club than show some character. Did you read what the Army chief of staff’s first concern was after the Ft Hood murders? General no-balls Casey said diversity shouldn’t become casualty after the Ft Hood shooting… F*#k him and the horse he rode in on. He was also one of the primary reasons Iraq was screwed for so long. So, of course he was promoted to the army’s top spot.

  • ANy truth to the rumor that he will be replaced by the Dixie Chicks?

  • Prokop

    Wikipedia says Ted Nugent achieved the 13th highest selling album in 1980, his highest result.
    His most recent album made it all the way to 186th in the charts.
    A position currently held by Prince Royce. You know…. him.

    So yeah, the Dixie Chicks and literally anyone else you can think of would be more relevant. What a devastating blow to all 55yo servicemen.

    the military loves the Nugent..

    I’m sure he doesn’t care. He can give a free concert outside of a military bases, and I am sure it will be well attended.

    Can I hope that he writes a doggggone good song that asks if Muslims eat dog and then later brag about it as an adult?

    Barky took over the airwaves again this morning. Does anyone ever…………….and I do mean ever……………………..remember having to listen to a president this much? He was all about how many lives he had saved. Bow Wow.

    He must have eaten a rescue dog.

    We all know damn well the White House made a few calls to the army with some threats if they didn’t get rid of Nugent.
